This year, from June 27th to July 18th, ICFF will celebrate two major milestones; the tenth-anniversary edition of the Italian Contemporary Film Festival and the second edition of the Lavazza Drive-In Film Festival, organized in collaboration with CHIN Radio/TV.

The Festival, in collaboration with the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, will also maintain its special focus on Italian contemporary cinema through notable screenings in several major Canadian cities and virtual experiences offered nationwide through the ICFF digital platform.

Both festivals will take place at Ontario Place in Toronto and in several other cities throughout Canada, including Vaughan, and Montreal.

The ICFF Festival will be a hybrid of in-person and online events available to viewers all across Canada.

The festivals are presented in collaboration with the Embassy of Italy in Canada, the Consulates General of Italy in Canada and the Istituti Italiani di Cultura in Canada.

SPECIAL SCREENING | LUCA 

The tenth edition of the Festival will open with Disney and Pixar‘s upcoming original feature film “Luca“, directed by Academy Award® nominee Enrico Casarosa (“La Luna”). The special screening will take place at Ontario Place on June 19th, with a special greeting from Casarosa and an introduction by Character Art Director Deanna Marsigliese, an Italian-Canadian and proud Torontonian.

Disney and Pixar’s original feature film “Luca” is a coming-of-age story about one young boy experiencing an unforgettable summer filled with gelato, pasta and endless scooter rides. Luca shares these adventures with his newfound best friend, but all the fun is threatened by a deeply held secret: they are sea monsters from another world just below the water’s surface.

The film showcases one incredible summer in the Italian seaside town of Portorosso-seen through the eyes of a sea monster named Luca. Staying true to the aquatic theme of the movie, the iconic waterfront venue of Ontario Place will fully immerse guests into the world of “Luca”, taking the audience on a summer journey with the main characters as they explore the most beloved aspects of Italian culture.
